The council welcomes all petitions from anyone who lives, works, or studies in Wiltshire or who uses the services provided by the council.

All petitions sent or presented to the council will receive an acknowledgement from the council within 10 working days of receipt. This acknowledgement will set out what the council plan to do with the petition: our response to a petition will depend on what a petition asks for and how many people have signed it. The petition will also be published on our website.

The council will treat something as a petition if it is identified as such, or if it seems that it is intended to be a petition.

If your issue relates to a highways issue in your community area it may be more appropriate to contact your local Community Area Transport Group by reporting your item through the Community Issues System.
